Why volunteer?

Our health walks couldn't happen without our volunteers. People like you who spend their time helping us out with a whole range of different roles.

Our volunteers help others to discover walking and they're highly regarded by our walkers throughout the city.

"I’d like to say a huge thank you to all the volunteer walk leaders for leading these fantastic walks. Closer to Home health walks could not exist without them."
Fred Arnold, walker with Closer to Home Walks.

As one of our volunteers, you can develop a range of new skills. You could discover that you make a great leader. Or find out more about marketing and promotion. Or you could enhance your computer or communication skills. What a great way to diversify your CV and give something back to your local community.
As a volunteer, you'll get support and advice from the Closer to Home Walking Network and the national Walking for Health team.

   " I went on the training course and really enjoyed it. Before long, with Eileen's support, I was not only leading my walk but helping out with others too! "
    Pete, walk leader with Closer To Home Health Walks.
